Sunday Ride: Sunday Adventure Rides of 2016
Due to the cold weather and poor road conditions we didn’t participate in any road Sunday Rides and I had plans of taking off for the Daytona 200 for the Sunday Adventure Ride, so I will write on our Daytona Bike Week/Daytona 200 road trip and then go into the exciting time we had last weekend for the first April Sunday Adventure Ride.
So as many of you know my body has had a
rough life with the time in the Marine Corps, Road Racing, and just the extracurricular high impact sports and activities I participate in for that adrenaline rush we crave. I finally had an injury that caused me to stop riding for a while, but not for long. My Daytona Bike Week trip was almost put on hold until I just decided at 2:15 on Tuesday that a trip is really what I need to get away and rehabilitate my wounds. ROAD TRIP, so I called a great customer of ours, who is now currently employed by us, that I knew was off work that week as well and we jumped on two Beamers and headed south for some new experiences and good racing. Brian was on his BMW K1600GT and I rode a ’15 BMW R1200RT. Great choices as both of our are service connected, wounded riders limping down to the beach, with my back issues and his hip problems we didn’t know if this would end up as a two day trip or just a quick rip down like we originally planned/hoped would happen. With great ergonomics of the two machines we would stop breifly for fuel four times, two with quick bathroom stops, and were able to motor all the way from Roanoke to Daytona Beach in only 11 hours!! Once there we had the opportunity to find other friends and customers of Frontline Eurosports and had a great time experiencing all the Daytona had to offer from the, not so us, outdoor bar scene to running down the beach and jumping into the ocean, experiencing the seafood, and of course, Flat Track and the Daytona 200. One super funny story that developed from this trip was when we were looking for a customer Steve (K1600GTL) who decided to just ride down as well, well, we couldn’t find him after all the texts and pics of where we were on the strip. Never found him…until three weeks later when I was looking through the pics and found him sitting on his bike right behind us, hahahaha, small world. I apologize for not getting to meet up with you too Carl. Next time……..
4.3.16 we took off for a Sunday Adventure Ride with 7 participants, I rode a BMW F800GS, Chip took the R1200GSA, Alan on his NEW R1200GS, Randy on another F800GS, Chris on his F800GSA, Tom on his beautiful Tiger 800XC, and Brian rockin’ out another Tiger 800. We took some of these riders out for their first dirt ride and others expanding their dirt riding experiences. We had a cool morning that froze our hands off, until we turned on the heated grips on our luxurious European motorcycles, and it took about two hours to finally get up to 38-40 degrees so we could focus on the fun instead of frozen apendiges. The ride took us down 311 to ol trusty Tub Run, which was frozen and not too sloppy so great first choice, and then we slipped up Pott’s Mountain to ride some forest service roads that would allow for some more speed for those who gained condfience in the dirt after their first exposure. We ended up having some great stories develop due to all the trees down from the wind storm the night before, but I’ll save those for the Spring Rally at the end of the month. We got to the concrete surfaces again and all the remaining hard chargers wanted more….”Give me more” I hear them screaming from their helmets as they fought the smiles long enought to speak their true desires. More, I can give you more, and that’s when the creek crossings started, and then another, and another, until we had their boots filled with water (great reason to upgrade to new boots) and they couldn’t stop yelling in their helmets with all the fun and excitement they were experiencing.

***Don’t forget that we are doing dual sport and adventure touring riding events the first Sunday of every month, Street Rides the third Sunday of every month. Let’s get those GS and Tiger machines dirty!!!!!!!****
So I finally got a full weekend on an F800GS with not only street
riding but lots of off-road, first time I’ve had that opportunity, and it was great!!! I’ve always stated that the Tiger 800 was a better street machine while the BMW competitor was the king of the off-road. With plenty of time on multiple different situations, packed dirt and clay, loose dirt and gravel, and then large rocks, and even creek crossings, I found her ever more trustworthy with the confidence of my Enduro Mode taking into account my lower friction co-efficient and adjusting the ABS and Traction Control.
Seamless ABS and smooth transition from traction control situations back to a controlled ride. She is also still lively enough to be competitive on the street just a bit taller for shorter riders for lots of stops on their daily commute, and the thinner saddle doesn’t allow me for as much range as the Tiger on the street, but, the factory heated grips were a life saver when the temperatures never peaked 38 degrees in the first three hours of the trek. The fuel economy is spectacular and never left me feeling like I need to
search for a fuel station.
So as always, hesitant on a model, ride it for hundreds of miles and we fall in love. Come on in and experience this machine for yourself and see what you’ve been missing while not riding the fantastic BMW Motorrad brand of motorcycles!!!
